LA Chargers vs. Washington Football Team Game Preview

The Chargers offensive line immediately gets a test. Chase Young could be the best pass rusher in the NFL and their front seven was feared last year. Moreover, the Washington Football Team were somehow the closest to defeating eventual Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

The expectation is that the Chargers will face off against Ryan “FitzMagic” Fitzpatrick. If that is the case, the Chargers should be expected to win this game. The quarterback play is significantly stronger when comparing Fitzpatrick and Herbert. 

The only X-Factor here is the Washington pass rush which is one of the tops in football. I am very bullish on the Chargers this year. They blew many leads last year due to poor offensive line play and bad coaching. Anthony Lynn is no longer a coach in Los Angeles so I am expecting improvements.
